Getting on a regular maintenance schedule can also prevent time-consuming multiple visits because many car repairs can be handled in the same visit if detected early enough. For example, while you’re replacing your timing belt it might just be time to replace your just-beginning-to-leak water pump since the labor done for both procedures is basically the same. There’s no use paying twice with both money and time for a job that can be completed expertly in just one visit.
So there’s no reason to wait for a rattle, clank, thunder or a boom, boom, boom. Just get on a regularly scheduled maintenance program for 30,000, 60,000, 90,000, and even 200,000 check ups. It will pay off down the road.
